We recently named Jonathan Tropper's This Is Where I Leave You—a hilarious portrait of a dysfunctional family—as one of our 20 unexpected books for your reading group.

If your book club has already read it, or maybe you're just a big fan of Tropper, you'll be happy to learn that he's got another novel coming out on August 21: One Last Thing Before I Go.


The novel is about a guy named Silver whose ex-wife is about to marry a wonderful guy and whose teen daughter—about to go to Princeton—has announced that she's pregnant. Here's more from the publisher (Dutton):

As the wedding looms and the pregnancy sinks in, this broken family struggles, bonds, and wrestles with each member’s individual anxieties. Lives begin anew, change radically, or, in Silver’s case—as he discovers that he could die at any moment without an operation he refuses to have—may be about to end in an instant.

Will you look for it in September?
